Denslow Thank You

Here's something that falls under the heading of' "How about that!"

About two weeks ago, some clients stopped in at the studio and made a purchase. While they were shopping, we talked about W. W. Denslow a bit, as they were buying a sea horse door-knocker. They were familiar with Denslow's work, particularly his Mother Goose, and we had a nice chat. To my surprise, an ingenious thank you note arrived from them in the mail this week!

The note is made from a pocket that would be used in the back of a library book, and the slip that would be used for checking out the book. The slip fits in the pocket, and a note is written on the plain side. I was very impressed by the trouble taken to create such a very appropriate thank you note!

What a clever note - I love the way it was designed! This is the sort of thing I am getting into these days. Seahorses are great!
